One good turn...



My dear readers, I am sure you all know that I am a cynic by nature.I have seen the selfish nature of man first hand and when it manifests itself I am not surprised at all.But today someone surprised me.We have this Grill in our school that have some wonderful burgers and hot dogs but unfortunately they are a bit pricey so I dont eat there often.But as it happens once in a while my stomach last night tired of my own cooking and the pizza that I enjoy by making cameos at different student organisation meetings.So I had to bit the bullet at lunchtime and seeing payday is a few days off the wallet isnt doing so well!Anyway I walk into the grill and the staff there are this very congenial black man and lady; very nice people.So I ask her how much the 1/4 pounder combo would be and she tells me something like $5.60 plus tax.I looked at my wallet and told her that I am broke and waiting for pay day.I then told her that I would go with the burger solo.She's tells me she knows how that feels and after taking my cash, hands me a cup to get a drink and I'm like that's great!Free soda.So I wait for my order and when it's ready I notice my bag seems kinda heavy.The wonderful lady had thrown in fries too!Sniff sniff sniff, it seems that not everyone is a selfish bastard!God bless that lady's soul.But now since someone has done my a good deed, it is now burning inside me like the wrath that is within the heart of the martial arts' student whose master has been killed by the Master of their rival school.I must have my revenge!Sorry got carried away!I must pass on the good deed.Guess I have to keep my eyes open for someone who needs a good deed.....

LOOOL. Aco, is this one of those forwards? If you do not do a good deed in the next 7 minutes, you will never have joy in your life. The love of your life will disown you at midnight and everything you do will be disaster.....
LOOOL.

Lakini, bless that lady's soul. Aki woiye....so sweet. You do not even need to do anything, something good is already happening to her. I can feel it. **KM, Yoga meditation pose, beckoning serenity, humming etc**
